A very good beer, not sure if it is a brown though.

Head poured nicelyand retained well. Lacing was excellent. Dark amber color.

Smells sweet, with a definate malt dominance.

Tastes of caramel malts. Alcohol is strong but is balanced beautifully with the malts. Hops come on after and are excellently used. Top notch.

A little bubbly on the tongue although not that over carbonated. A solid mouthfeel.

Alcohol flavor and content rules it out as a session beer. Still is very drinkable. Proabably an occasional drink but excellent none the less.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This bottle has been hibernating at my house for quite a while, years I believe, but here goes; Pours a pretty murky, slightly golden dark brown color with a goodly oatmeal colored head and respectable lacing. The nose hit gives up a prune-tinged caramel and brown bread and Raisinettes and sweet fruit nougat. There's a hint of fermentation but overall this smells chewy and delectable, and I suspect there is some result from the aging I've allowed. The taste is a bit more grain heavy with maple walnut and more dark fruit ideas. I get some fermenting pineapple and more brown bread with a touch of milk chocolate here and there. It's medium-plus bodied with a fairly low testosterone carbonation and a bit of an aqueous feel, but I pick up some meatiness that's hard to place. Again, I feel the somewhat careless aging process has transformed this from the initial result, but I definitely enjoy it. Leaves a little alcohol burn which I imagine wasn't the case when this bottle was fresh off the retail shelf. I liked it, as I have the other Zappa series brews so far. In its present state I would say this comes a lot closer to some sort of barleywine than any typical American brown ale.

A dark amber beer with a bit of off-white head on top. There is a nice caramel and toffee sweetness with a touch of cocoa and dark fruit. Definitely a bit of oxidation, but not really the cardboard variety. Just a touch of citrus peel on the flavor to go with some other sweeter fruits like raisins. A bit of chocolate/cocoa, toffee, and caramel. Some subtle oxidation, but like the nose, nothing that really detracts from the beer.
